Come To Daddy
by Aphex Twin
Released: Oct 1997
If you could pick only one record to sum up Richard D. James' schizoid musical personality, it'd have to be 1997's Come to Daddy EP. Not only does it contain his apex of ugliness -- the grinding, gurgling title track, complete with po-faced death-metal vocals -- it also features "Flim," a delicate breakbeat lullaby that's the epitome of innocence. There are no duds, in fact; further highlights include the mournful closing song, the warped acid of "Funny Little Man" and the convoluted drums of "Bucephalus Bouncing Ball," a rhythmic tour de force that seems to defy gravity itself.
